The Subbuteo photo-real figures appear to have been issued in two distinct sets plus the Urban Arena figures and a few odds and ends. A full listing in Excel format is downloadable from the Library page of this website.
Set 1. 0904 series, 45 cards in total (135 players**)
From season 2004/05 this set is distinguishable by the numbering on the bottom right of the reverse of the cards and also more obviously by the player names and positions being shown in boxes on the back of the cards. Full club listing and links below.
** Actually 136 players as one Liverpool card came in two versions - one with Smicer and the other with Warnock. Click here for details.
Set 2. 1105 series, 55 cards in total (165 players)
The second set from 2005/06 season to which Benfica and Roma were added from the previous year. Most of the cards from the first series reappear in this second series with some of the players having been updated or replaced. The kits in the photographs have also been updated. On the reverse of the card the Subbuteo logo has replaced the square player detail panels.
Set 3. 1205 series, Urban Arena, unknown number
The final 'set' only available in Urban Arena box sets. Seems to be the 1105 series reprinted in 'street gear clothing'.
Set 4. 0407 series, 55 cards in total (165 players)
A recently discovered set only available in the last edition of the Dream Team Stadium set (with club badges curving up to the left on the box lid). No scans on the site yet.
I pay a minimum of £10 for any card I need.
In the 0904 series there are 45 cards each containing 3 players so 135** players in total.
In the 1105 series there are 55 cards each containing 3 players so 165 players in total
A grand total of 300** different players to collect (many players appear twice). The series one and series two Liverpool players are in identical kits so are technically just one figure unless they are still on the unused cards.
** In the 0904 series there are actually 136 figures making 301 to collect overall. This is because Smicer was replaced by Warnock on a Liverpool card click here for details
